Scarlett

Tom Ford Beauty Scarlett Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, coral-red with warmer undertones and a soft sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage if desired. The lipstick was smooth, lightly creamy, and thinner, so it did not appear overly glossy nor did it slide around when worn. The color stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Lip Color Sheer formula is supposed to have a "semi-sheer effect" with a "creamy" and "hydrating" formula. They are a sheerer lip color, which may or may not be one's cup of tea; if you are looking for pigment, look elsewhere, but if you're someone who likes sheerer coverage, lightweight, hydrating textures, then it might be a formula for you.

There are several shades in the range that have a more transformative effect, as they contain a lot of shimmer/sparkle or have a more duochrome or iridescent-like finish. There are others, typically deeper, richer hues (reds, berries, etc.) that are more medium coverage. The wear ranged a lot from as short as two hours to as long as five hours but most wore around three hours. The formula is lightly hydrating with a very lightweight feel on the lips. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

Ingrid

Tom Ford Beauty Ingrid Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark, pinky berry with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. There was faint, pearly shimmer strewn throughout the lipstick but not enough to give it a truly pearly/metallic finish. It had medium coverage with a smooth, lightweight texture that was emollient but not overly slippery. The color went on evenly and didn’t gather much in my lip lines. This shade wore well for five hours and left a faint stain behind while being lightly hydrating.

Alexis

Tom Ford Beauty Alexis Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a barely-there pearl sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–it was one of the more pigmented shades in the range, so if you were hoping for the semi-sheer coverage as promised by the brand, this would miss the mark. The texture was also a bit thicker and more substantial compared to other shades, though it was certainly still lighter weight and comfortable to wear. On me, it lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Nico

Tom Ford Beauty Nico Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, reddish brown base with green-to-teal shifting sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a moderate amount of sparkle; enough that it was noticeably sparkly but not enough that it appeared glittery or metallic in finish. The texture was lightweight, emollient, and thin enough that I could feel that it was a more sparkly shade from the tube. This shade wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Every time they release new ones I always hope they put one out like their LE Black Orchid. I have a couple (Richard and Leonardo) and the formula is really nice. Nico is particularly pretty, love that sparkle. I might have to pick it up.

A bit off topic: will you be reviewing the Besame Snow White collection?

Ingrid and Alexis look perfect for autumn/ winter!
Wishing that Nico was just a bit more pigmented, even though I’m well aware these are meant to be sheerer.

Nico had me curious, too! It was very interest in the tube (still interesting on but looked cooler in the tube as is typical, lol).

I’m surprised by just how much I really like Scarlet since generally I shy away from warmer tones or “coral”. In the tube, Nico reminds me of MAC’s Club e/s or Too Faced’s Label Whore….those green/red duochrome shadows (though applied, it’s obviously very different and looks so much nicer than I expected).

Nico is so pretty. I will mix it with more opaque colors to make it more interesting like Emily Dougherty on instagram. She mixed it with Joy from Laura Mercier and it was gorgeous.
